Published Friday, 16th November 2012

The Tyler Junior College Speech and Debate team finished strong in its fall tournament schedule.

Team TJC earned 2nd place Sweepstakes on both days of the Rowdy Aggie Classic Forensic Tournament hosted by McNeese University and Texas A&M University on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 10 and 11.

“These second-place Sweepstakes wins mean we were only beaten by UT Austin and that we defeated such schools as LSU, Texas A&M University, the University of Mary Hardin Baylor, Texas State University and Cameron University,” said M’Liss Hindman, TJC professor and team director. Assistant director is TJC professor Joan Andrews.
